Hard-right blogs debate their own irrelevancy

What a hoot! The commentators on “Raghead Rebane’s” blog — from “Bored Georgeman” to Gregory to R.L. Crabb — tonight are taking George to task for his obsession with turbans — a position that has long disturbed the rest of us.

George is trying to wiggle out of it, but it’s a persistent push.

I think the latest election results, such as Heidi Hall’s win and Measure W’s defeat, has rattled their world. Looking in the mirror and discovering that you are becoming irrelevant must be hard to accept. That’s when the internal squabbling begins.

    1. I was born at Broadway and Van Ness, in the Old French Hospital. It is still there, now a French retirement home. In grade school, (Hillside, in Berkeley) I used to be envious of all the kids born in Berkeley, which was shorter and easier to spell every time we had to complete forms.

      Herb Caen set me on the right path, along with Art Hoppe, Stan Delaplane, and the curmudgeon with the Bowler hat, from Hell’s Kitchen…..and Gordo, Phil Frank and Gary Larson, and for a brief time, Nevada County’s own, Dan O’Neill. Must’n forget Charlie Schulz, Peanuts.

  1. Some telling comments on this article.
    It’s hard when you’re a dinosaur.

    The greatest of these benefits is in the recent announcement that Nevada County has more registered Democrats that Republicans??? Oh PUKE! Give me a break. What a leap.

    Couldn’t agree more William. The only reason there are now more registered Democrats is this is where the liberals from the Bay Area have settled. It’s not that their changing the minds of Republicans. It’s interesting they would find a county built basically on conservative values such a nice place to live. Conservatives must have done something right.

    1. I notice how it’s the Bay area people who get bashed but not those from SoCal who behave the same way and worse. Not everyone from either area has that “my way or the highway” attitude. I remember SoCal being infested with yuppies (and worse, wanna-bes) running rampant and shoving their agendas at others.

  2. In the ’50s and ’60s, liberals from the Bay Area (think of the late Paul Perry of MIM, Osborn and Woods of Miners Foundry, Pulitzer prize-winning poet Gary Snyder, etc.) helped make this county such a nice place to live. Nowhere does the name George Rebane come up in that discussion. LOL.

  3. George has a letter in the Union published and mentions the defeat of Measures S & W. While I am happy Measure W went down, the results of Measure S were very disappointing.
